Markham Street Residence

View of the new gable

This attic renovation of a large Victorian house created a family living suite in a two family co-operative household. The attic was substantially re-planned and a large new dormer addition made, to allow for a study, living room, two bedrooms and bathroom to accommodate a new child’s entry into the family. Anticipating g a home birth in the water, the bath occupied a special place with a corner window and grand view of the city. As space was at a premium, built in cabinetry was designed for storage in all of the nooks and crannies of the knee spaces. Additionally, we made a long paper lamp for the tall main square staircase.
